911 Carrera 4
ONLY 37K ORIGINAL MILES, LOTS OF GT-3 UPGRADES, ALL WHEEL DRIVE PORSCHE
A technological tour-de-force, this 2008 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 is an incredible piece of hardware, and if there was ever a car that could be considered a screaming bargain, this is it. Equipped with a lengthy list of expensive Porsche options, plus a GT3 body kit and 3-piece wheels, this extraordinary performance car is available for about half its original cost.
There aren't many better colors on a Porsche than silver, which seems to emphasize the car's German precision and icy cool effectiveness, as if going fast were no more challenging than filling up with gas. Porsche's finish quality is legendary and aside from a little scuffing on that low-low chin spoiler, you'll be hard-pressed to find any signs of wear or deterioration on this incredible Carrera 4. It's quite exceptional. The GT3 body kit makes the classic 911 shape all the more aggressive, with a deeper chin spoiler, a revised rear fascia, and a cool wing that channels air over the engine compartment to increase downforce. All the badges and emblems have been neatly removed save for the Porsche crest on the hood, but I'm guessing that nobody needs to read a name plate to identify this particular car. That's what driving an icon gets you. Things like the headlights, mirrors, and taillights are also virtually like new, suggesting that this 911 has led a very easy life.
The charcoal leather interior seamlessly blends performance and luxury in a way that only Porsche seems to manage. If you wanted, you could drive this car to work every day and never know that there's almost 350 horsepower on tap. The seats are unmarked, the carpets look new, and it carries rare silver seat belts that are something only Porschephiles will understand. This one also carries a 6-speed manual gearbox, the preferred choice for enthusiasts who like to stir their own gears, and the list of options is rather lengthy. First there's the navigation system that integrates with the entertainment system, plus all the usual stuff like automatic climate control, power windows, locks, and mirrors, a power sunroof, and the grippy leather steering wheel. White-faced gauges are arrayed in traditional Porsche fashion, bit the tachometer front and center and you'll have to work hard not to be distracted by the lovely French seams on the instrument panel. The forward-mounted trunk is like new and offers reasonable accommodations for your gear.
The 3.8 liter flat six engine was rated at 325 horsepower. The new 4-wheel-drive system that is the '4' in Carrera 4, offers sophisticated traction management that makes the rear-engined car incredibly stable; you have to do something intentionally foolish to get in trouble with this car. The 6-speed manual is a joy to shift and actually offers a higher top speed than the PDK, and you'll never get tired of the big six's tenor howl at speed. Massive brakes have been a Porsche trademark for years and are completely resistant to abuse and repeated high-speed stops and come dressed with bright red calipers and cross-drilled rotors. Gorgeous 3-piece alloy wheels are a scary expensive upgrade and carry ultra-low-profile 235/30/20 front Michelin Pilots and very new 305/25/20 rear Pirelli PZero Nero radials.
Beautifully built, outrageously fast, and with a look that'll be stylish forever, this Carrera 4 is more proof that Porsches truly are special cars. Call today!
